Programa Ramón y Cajal, Universidad de Sevilla

I am a Ramón y Cajal Fellow at the Universidad de Sevilla. I have studied in Sevilla, Cornell and UCLA and worked at the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (2012-14), the University of Chicago (visiting lecturer, spring 2016) and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (2014-2018).

I am the author of Engineers and the Making of the Francoist Regime (The MIT Press, 2014) and Los ingenieros de Franco (Crítica, 2017). I have also authored several articles on resource geopolitics, conservation, energy and historical and epistemological issues pertaining to oceanography.

I have co-edited the special issue Experiencing the Global Environment (SHPS, 2018) and the books Technology and Globalization (Palgrave, 2018) and De la Guerra Fría al calentamiento global (La Catarata, 2018).
